A large gathering of South Dakota tribal members are honoring the spirit of their ancestors who signed the 1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie 150 years ago.
Many gather at the site with mixed feelings.
The 1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie guaranteed a large swath of land from Nebraska to Montana, which included the Black Hills and the east bank of the Missouri River.
Eventually, the established treaty area got whittled down to modern day reservations.
The 150 years between the treaty signing and today include events like the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre.
